In case you have not seen the basketball court recently, a couple of changes have been made. In addition to graffiti removed courtesy of some of the local youth, the backboards are now replaced with metal replacements that we hope will last much longer than the glass ones which were there before. When deciding between the glass type again, which had been touted as indestructible, and the metal ones which at least should not shatter, the latter option was chosen primarily for safety and durability. The basketball court area is one about which the board regularly received questions after the previous backboards were broken, and which was identified as needing regular maintenance and repair in the reserve study, so it was given priority for repair, a task which was completed in 2016.
Thank-you to those who provided feedback and helped move this task forward.
